Back The British Society for Heart Failure - Freedom From Heart Failure

Heart Failure is a misunderstood and misdiagnosed condition, as malignant as some of the most common cancers, it should be treated with the same urgency. With the widespread impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, this issue has become more pressing than ever, with at least 23,000 missed cases of heart failure in the last year that we know about.

The British Society for Heart Failure, the professional association of heart failure specialists in the UK, wishes to address this lack of awareness in their quest to make heart failure a national priority. Their campaign, Freedom from Failure - The F Word, has been developed to inform and educate whilst inspiring a sense of hope, encouraging each of us to learn more about this important condition, to recognise the symptoms such as Fighting for breath, Fatigue and Fluid build-up in ourselves and our loved ones and to seek timely medical help.
